Mars in Cancer controlling women’s wombs

MARS enters CANCER May 15- July 1st.

Mars is Masculine energy, action, raw testosterone, the warrior, desire, sex, competition, rape, anger, aggression, initiator, Ruler of Aries and Scorpio. 

CANCER is the Mother, womb, Feminine, the Goddess, Mother Mary,, Demeter, Gaia, Ceres, all Mother Goddesses, water, wells, nurturing, nourishment, emotions, security, home, children receptivity, Ruled by the Moon.

MARS is considered weakened in such a feminine watery sign. Yet Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps has Mars in Cancer but it also makes sense.

The war on women’s wombs is on as Alabama passed the strictest abortion law ever May 15. Mars in Cancer is repressed rage against the power of the Great Mother. Trump’s anti-environmental laws are also part of this repressed PTSD.

Mars in Cancer symbolizes the Warrior returns Home to the Goddess.

But right now we are seeing the shadow side of this very clearly. The anti-abortion fundamentalist movement is taking over in the U.S, and must be stopped.

IDEALLY, This is a time for Masculine cleansing and purification of TOXIC MASCULINITY, where the warrior takes off his armor and surrenders into the unconditionally loving arms of the Mother Goddess Archetype of his own Anima, his own soul or to a woman. The son comes home to the Mother, to his roots, his female ancestors, to be nurtured, nourished and held safe after being at War in the world and within himself for the last five thousand years. Men, in general, are always suffering from PTSD whether they have actually been in war or not. The workforce is a very competitive battlefield for men and women. 

For women Mars in Cancer helps them to raise their Power passion and be agressive strong Amazon warrior women. They can work with their own inner Animus, their inner warrior, who acts in the world on behalf of feminine desires. Most women are very masculine these days, they don’t know about being strong and Feminine at the same time especially if they have never had children.

Mars in Cancer is also repressed anger and rage. We are seeing this well up and spill over in the U.S. these days. The anti-abortion law passed in Alabama will raise riots in the U.S. As men are into controlling women’s wombs. 

Mars is weak in Cancer, there can be fear to move, to act. The U.S. and Canada and many other countries are Cancer Suns. the action will be sluggish. Positively Peace treaty time hopefully? Use this time to reflect and be receptive and wait..like a pregnant woman. This is not the best time to make big moves. 

The Goddess energies are returning and the movement of men who embrace and serve the Goddess is getting stronger every day. Words from Jeff Brown from Apologies to the Divine Feminine from a warrior in the transition from 2010 – see link for full article below:

 “I am grateful for Grandmother, for no one saw my tenderness more clearly. I am grateful for Mother, for choosing to bring me into being and for nourishing my body until I could find my feet. I am grateful for Mother Earth, for grounding my expansion and enlivening my spirit. I am grateful for the Divine Mother, the real Mother of us all. I now feel her divine presence, so close. Fiercely compassionate, she was always right here, breathing life into me, holding me safe. I sit in her lap as she breathes me.”

The warriors need to lay down their arms and to surrender, like the

Men need to become Knights in shining arm, defending and integrating Feminine values and this is what Mars in Cancer will teach them to do. Men need to defend  women, protect them, the children and FEMININE rights and have the freedom to express their own feelings fully. Yes, big boys Do cry. “I fight for beauty”- Daario Naharis from Game of Thrones.

 Mars in Cancer governs the stomach, so much desire to stuff those feelings. The battle of the bulge will be on.  Tummies will be ultra sensitive to any emotional and food upsets. Attract someone by cooking for them. The desire to reunite with family is also strong and favored.

Mars in CANCER –

Cancer governs the 4th house traditionally and that house/sign holds the key to your actual physical birth and pre-birth, to your relationship with your Mom, your early childhood, your roots, foundation, the Unconscious, your womb experiences. Any unconscious, shadow material will be activated by Mars in Cancer making you angry and lash out spontaneously. Perhaps it was your mother who was the aggressive, angry, repressed anger, dangerous one. This would be a great time to do some deep therapy work as Mars rules SCORPIO sign of psychotherapy. With Saturn at those fated last degrees of Scorpio, Mars adds ease and emphasis to accessing your ancient buried emotional treasure trove lying in your knotted up guts.

For many the idea of going home is scary as it was/is a battle zone. But this is the optimum time to heal those wounds. This may be a tumultuous time as Mars aggravates family feuds. Mars in Cancer is literally fire in water, so with the droughts in California and elsewhere, expect to see battles over water rights, and the oceans, also wetter weather.

MEANING

Surrender your ego posturing, your defenses, you need to fight and be right. Let go and allow. Honor your Feminine side, your intuition and feelings which are always clear. Positive warrior battles will take the form of  being soldiers of Love, supporting women and children, cook-offs, eating contests. 

Where is the Sign of CANCER in your natal chart? That is where the action is. Remember we are all family.  A lot of water therapy is good, releasing in hot baths with Epsom salts. Drink lots of water. Sex in water is also favored. Have a water birth.

I will write Mars aspects later.

He has a rather fascinating Natal Chart. SUN Venus conjunction in Aries and Mercury Retrograde-hes an impulsive, high energy driven man. 

MOON mid-heaven and Jupiter in 10th House of fame in TAURUS -sensuous, career focussed, indulgent, sensualist, body oriented.

Moon OPPOSITE NEPTUNE IN SCORPIO square Leo Ascendant

This is one are of where Roberts drug addiction problems stem from and also what makes him a great actor. He can morph into any one he wants with Neptune opposite the Moon. He does everything extremely intensely, he gets obsessed, Bug highs and big lows in his life. And Strong will power. 

LEO Ascendant – yes he wants to be the leader, star, natural actor, charisma, big hearted, loyal.He tells it like it is. 

MARS URANUS PLUTO conjunction in Virgo opposite Saturn and Chiron in Pisces squaring the North Node in Gemini. Mars-Uranus is technology-inventor, Pluto is Wealth- doesn’t this describe Tony Stark?

Mars is associated with the metal IRON. Mars opposite Saturn square the Nodes is FATE. Robert was fated to play IRON MAN which has been his most successful financial role ever. 

Robert was born during the height of the 60’s created Uranus Pluto conjunction but for him its personal. He is a rebel, an independent, hard-working, perfectionist who makes it look easy.

His North Node in Gemini square Saturn and Chiron in Pisces

Robert struggled with drug problems early in his career. His father indicated by Saturn was also a drug addict and gave him marijuana when he was 6. Saturn-Chiron conjunction He’s been to rehab and jail numerous times for drug addictions.Robert through will power and surrender has allowed him to rebound and start anew life. He has become the living example of the wounded healer. 

His young son was in trouble for drugs as well in the last while.

But through will power he has been sober and clean for many years.  He describes himself as Jewish-Buddhist and sees Astrologers. Good for him. I really like him. My daughters a big fan of his. I thought he was amazing in Chaplin and also liked his Sherlock too. He was good in Zodiac as well. 

ROBERT’S TRANSITS 2019-2020

Pluto is now squaring his Mercury in Aries and Saturn will join this in early 2020.

He may want to start his own production company or write a screenplay.

URANUS the planet of revolutionary change is also crossing his MIdheaven his highest career and fame position. Robert may reinvent himself this year. Uranus also affects his IC his “root chakra” his home and family may have some upsetting energy or he may move. 

Robert must watch his addictions carefully as Neptune planet of actors and addictions is squaring his North and South Nodes which Jupiter will aspect and amplify again in Retrograde this summer.

Neptune will be trine to his Natal Neptune in 2020-2021 so I hope he uses this energy to be super creative dreamy spiritual and compassionate. He could start a charity or school for actors or film makers. Neptune is conjunct to his CHIRON in PISCES and squaring his Nodes of Fate now and into 2020.He will be feeling vulnerable. It’s definitely a time to give back the multi-millions he has made to good cause. He may get more spiritual and creative, He used to sing. Perhaps he will take this up and I see him painting.

The 2020 BIG CONJUNCTION of Jupiter and Saturn at 0 Aquarius also square Robert’s Mid-Heaven indicating a brand new 20 year cycle for him.

Straight shooting talk, Mercury in Sagittarius

MERCURY in SAGITTARIUS  October 30/31 until January 5, 2019

This post has nothing to do with advocating for guns and for the NRA. With the recent murders of Jewish people in the U.S. plus all the horrific and unnecessary shootings that go on in the U.S. it is time to legislate common sense gun control laws in America.  I am a Canadian and we do not carry guns in this country. The ability to print 3D metal guns in the U.S and in the world is now possible as well. This is an even bigger worry as the freedom of expression law is being pulled out to defend this.

It’s straight talk all the way as the communicator and trickster God of merchants and those who communicate and message a lot enters the 9th sign gifting us all with horse sense.

Mercury in SAGITTARIUS keywords: Forthright, honest, naive, inspiring, optimistic, adventurous, good-humored, preachers, animal rights, political activists, philosophers, teachers, spiritual, sage are all keywords.

It’s a good time to plan travels, learning and higher education of all kinds.

Mercury in Sagittarius influence makes us rather scatterbrained.

Mercury in Sagittarius is related specifically to the 8 of Wands in the Tarot, major Arcana card #14 Temperance and the King of Wands as ruler of Sagittarius in general 

You will be thinking about everything all at once and want to learn more and share knowledge. Mercury in Sagittarius sets your brain on fire and is openminded. Its a good time for doing yoga, studying religion and spirituality; Foreign languages, writing, publishing, finding a guru or teacher and connecting with like-minded thinkers. This energy will help you to search for higher meaning and truth. You will not be able to lie with Mercury in Sagittarius.

No Pinocchio stuff allowed Scorpios and Gemini. LOL

Be careful because of this energy as it makes us all a bit naive. Legal matters, sports and religion are all Sagittarius topics. Voicing your opinions on political and animal rights and education will be important. Be careful not to be preachy and hypocritical. Mercury in Sagittarius wants to be “in the know” about everything. 

MERCURY ASPECTS

EARLY MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT November 16 @ 13 degrees 29 minutes Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces @ 13 degrees 42 minutes.
